The Unmitigated Gaul: French President Mitterand Supported Rwandan Genocidal Thugs

The is a Kissingerian-style amoral foreign policy, and then there is the vicious French mutate of that.

The former French president François Mitterrand supported the perpetrators of the 1994 Rwandan genocide despite clear warnings that mass killings of the Tutsi population were being orchestrated, according to declassified French documents.

...

The previously secret diplomatic telegrams and government memos also suggest the late French president was obsessed with the danger of "Anglo-Saxon" influence gripping Rwanda.

...

The documents, obtained by lawyers for six Tutsi survivors who are bringing a case against France for "complicity with genocide'' at the Paris Army Tribunal, suggest the late President Mitterrand's support for the Hutus was informed by an obsession with maintaining a French foothold in the region. One of the lawyers, Antoine Compte, said France was aware of the potential danger of its support for the pre-genocide Rwandan government. "Massacres on an ethnic basis were going on and we have evidence that France knew this from at least January 1993. The French military executed the orders of French politicians. The motivation was an obsession with the idea of an Anglo-Saxon plot to oust France from the region."

Tens of thousands Over a million human beings needed massacring in order to give France a .1% advantage in dealing with "the Anglo-Saxons." Truly dispicable. And this is the country that lectures the world about peace, compromise, and international order brought about through UN consensus.

Update: I originally guessed "tens of thousands" as the death toll in Rwanda. I was afraid I'd guessed too high, so I bothered to check the article.

Over a million. Over a million.

All for France's delusional, deadly obsession with its "glory."

France's crimes against humanity may never rival the Soviet Union's, but one day some ambitious writer should try his hand at compiling The Black Book of Gaulism.

The Mot Juste:

Liberte,

Egalite,

Complicite
